I haven't eaten a donut in years but saw the reviews and had to check out Duck Donuts for myself. Went expecting to take a bite of my husband's but got my own made to order donut--chocolate glaze with nuts. The outside is crispy like a cake donut, but the inside soft and just seems to melt when you bite into it. We'll worth the calories!

Read about this on Trip Advisor, so stopped in under the premise of trying to find the Boardwalk, which is right behind them. You go in the door on the left and order. You pick your glaze... husband had lemon, I had peanut butter, they also had chocolate,cinnamon, glazed, powdered sugar, etc. Then you pick your topping... peanuts, coconut, chocolate sprinkles or multicolor sprinkles. You pay, she sends the order electronically to the other side, you go outside then in the door on the right and pick up a styrofoam container with perfection inside. I have not had anything like this in my life.

Cute place on the boardwalk where they have interesting flavors (maple bacon!). You make your choice and then walk over to the other side of the boardwalk and see your donuts plopping into hot oil and being frosted and flavored as your ordered. Maple bacon was great...like breakfast in a donut...Definitely worth a stop in when you are craving something sweet.

Made while you wait. At 6:30 AM I was second in line, so I didn't have to wait long. I bought 2 dozen (for 8 people), and got two free ones. The people I was with were real donut freaks. They even ate the two with bacon????When you are in Duck, do this, then bicycle 18 miles to Corolla and back.

There are donut shops and then there is Duck Donuts. In a league of their own, splurge, just go for it, they are delicious, and believe the headlines, they are the best donuts EVER!! It’s called treating yourself to a delicious, fresh baked donut or donuts! Because you can’t have just one, go with a friend so you can try a few. Classic powdered and glazed, how do they make them so delicious? It must be love. Order on one side and pick up your donuts across the way. Please don't even think of leaving town without stopping, you will be sorry.
